On being a good steward to our planet, give your trees a drink. CBS 5 had a piece on The Urban Forestry Division’s advice on winter winds can dry out the soil and plants, and leave our trees and shrubs needing water. Most don’t think of them as growing this time of year but they do need water.

To do this;

Water during the warmer weather, but then finish before it gets below 40 degrees.

Water near the feeder roots or stem.

Apply the water slowly to the area at the rate of about 10 gallons per inch of the tree diameter.

Water is during the late morning and early afternoon

Pay attention to trees you may have planted in the last 2 to five years.

It also will help your budget and protect your investment, when you don’t have to remove a dead tree, only to have to plant another.
